I'm looking at two companies to register a domain in, it's either going to be GoDaddy or 1and1.
I checked out some of the reviews and saw that 1&1 offers free private domain registration while GoDaddy offers better customer support.
My question is: Is customer support important for just a domain registration (not hosting)? Do things go wrong often and seriously enough for me to care about this?
Also I've heard of some pitfalls in doing private domain registration, is it not a smart move to do?
Also I feel that each google result of
company X vs company Y returns results that one of the companies own. Is there any authoritative site for this or something like that?
